The Dublin Wrap

This is my latest creation, in knitting that is, The Dublin Wrap. When we were visiting my brother in Oregon, I spent some time in a wool shop and picked out this gorgeous green wool. I really love the shade, it is so me, and I wanted to make a nice warm wrap with it. I had the dublin wrap in my queue on Ravelry for a while and thought this would make a perfect project. I must say all that moss stitch took a while, but I am pleased with the result for the most part. The ruffle isn’t very ruffle-y, more of a curl, but I will try to see what I can do about that. It is very warm and I very much love the colour. This shawl pin is is the most beautiful one I’ve ever seen. It was a gift for Christmas (thanks, Dad!) and it is just perfect. It was made by American Carver, and I love the way it is not completely smooth, you can tell it was handmade. It is a perfect fit with my new wrap. I’m still working on the cardi for the babe, and then next up will be a sweater vest for me, I’m slowly working my way up to sleeves.
